They were blessed with four children: Keri, Danny, Vena, and Shannon. Due to Kerry being in the military, the family lived a military life for several years before settling in Richland, where MO has resided for the past 50 years. MO was a very loving woman and took care of children in her home for several families in the Richland area for many years. She cared for them as if they were her own. In her spare time, MO enjoyed sewing and baking. She made the best rolls and she loved cooking for her family and friends. Her greatest joy came from caring for her family. She worshipped her kids, grandchildren, the ones that she cared for and her great grandchildren were her pride and joy. MO had made an important decision in her life and accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior. She was a member of Grace Baptist Church of Richland. MO went home to be with her Lord Friday, December 24, 2021, in the Richland Care Center having attained the age of 83 years.
